The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has waved aside reactions over his dress code while presenting the state’s 2017 budget on Tuesday.
Fayose had stirred controversy when he showed up at the Ekiti State Assembly in military camouflage to present the 2017 appropriation bill.
However, speaking through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Lere Olayinka, he maintained that his performance and achievement and not his attire should be considered.
Olayinka, who spoke via his Twitter handle, @olayinkalere, strongly defended his employer and told all those complaining to have their heads examined, adding that if President Muhammadu Buhari liked, he could dress like an herdsman to present the budget.
He tweeted: “If your concern is what a man wears to the office and not how well he performs his duties in the office, I doubt if your head is correct!
“No wonder you supported a Buhari, who left office in 1985 and did not gain any academic, travel, business or even reading experience as president and Nigeria is now in depression.
“If Buhari likes, let him dress like FULANI HERDSMEN to the National Assembly to present 2017 Budget. Wetin be my own? All I’m interested in is for the Budget to translate to better living conditions for Nigerians.”
